Nottingham Pitch Report
The Nottingham Pitch has always been a sporting wicket. There is enough assistance to fast bowlers in the starting few hours. As the game progresses, the pitch becomes suitable for batting from day two onwards. The spinners can also expect the bowl to grip and turn towards the end of day three onwards.
